In a previous post, I talked to you guys about Chinese wedding traditions that we’ll be including in the wedding. I also talked about the Chinese tea ceremony and its importance (and I may have overused the Jared Leto GIF, just a bit).
In this post, I’ll talk about the “Western” wedding traditions that we’ll have at the wedding.
Unlike the Chinese traditions, we’ll only have a few key Western traditions for our wedding. Mr. Big’s parents are too traditional and Mumma/MIL Bighorn doesn’t have any Dutch traditions that she wanted us doing.
This post isn’t necessarily for those wanting to know about Western traditions, but more for those interested in knowing, as these traditions are pretty common in Western weddings.
The “It’s Bad Luck for the Groom to See the Bride Before the Ceremony” Tradition
This is a quintessentially Western tradition and originated during the time when arranged marriages were common.
